I was shocked to read The Bee editorial praising Henry T. Perea for his opposition to SB 350 and SB 32. These bills are critical to cleaning our Valley’s air and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Assemblyman Perea’s actions look like an abuse of power to me. Should we follow the money? Apparently, he and the others have the power to say no, but what we need in this time of crisis are people who can say yes.
As someone diagnosed with emphysema due to decades of breathing our Valley’s polluted air, the smoke from the Rough fire pouring in through my window every morning is a painful, constant reminder of what’s happening around us right now as a result of global warming and what’s to come. And to think that I voted for Assemblyman Perea!
